Part of the marketing and hype lead-up to any tech launch, now, is a bespoke Twitter hashtag emoji. And now, ahead of its November 10 launch, Xbox Series X has its own.

Microsoft has chosen a Series X over the cuter Series S for its emoji series, and the image will now be attached to several Twitter hashtags. In a Twitter thread, Xbox announced the following hashtags will carry an image of the powerful rectangular console:

  • #XboxSeriesX
  • #Xbox
  • #SeriesX
  • #PowerYourDreams
  • #PYD
  • #JumpIn

Apple is giving its mask-wearing emoji an update: The keyboard character donning a medical face mask will be smiling under the face covering rather than frowning, according to the Emojipedia blog. 

Apple is rolling out the new emoji as part of the latest update to its operating system. The iOS 14.2 software, which was released to developers last week, is expected to be released publicly this month. 

Apple did not immediately reply to CBS MoneyWatch’s request for comment. But images obtained by Emojipedia show a clear change in expression on the masked emoji. 

The first iteration’s eyes are turned down, while the newest generation appears to be smiling.
